    No win no fee in Barnes Claims


    When someone tells you they have hurt their finger, it is usual to assume a cut, bruise or some minor injury of that nature.  But finger injuries can be very serious – fingers can be crushed in machinery, lost in accidents and badly damaged in all sorts of ways.  It is not unusual for victims to lose the use of their hand after their fingers have been injured in an accident.

    If the accident that caused the injury was the fault of someone else and it happened within the last three years, providing the injury was severe enough to need medical attention, the victim will be entitled to compensation and should contact our lawyers to make a start on their no win no fee in Barnes claim.

    Finger damage sustained in the workplace

    Many of the finger injuries of a serious nature happen in the workplace.  Your employer has a legal duty to protect the health and safety of his staff while they are at work.  If they fail in this duty, they may have to face a personal injury claim from the injured party as well as being investigated by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

    Making sure HSE know what has happened

    Serious accidents at work should be reported to the HSE, and if you are involved in the accident and you suspect your employer has not reported it, you should do so yourself.  The sorts of incidents HSE expect to be told about are:

    • Death
    • Major injuries, broken arms, legs, or badly damaged fingers
    • Dangerous incidents like the collapse of scaffolding or a wall
    • People being overcome by fumes from gasses or chemicals
    • Any other injury that stops you doing your work for more than seven days
    • Industrial illnesses or diseases

    The aim of HSE is to reduce the number of accidents that happen in workplaces. They will investigate serious accidents to try and prevent a repeat event, and to establish who was to blame. The report they produce can be very useful when no win no fee Barnes lawyers are making a personal injury claim.
